Class Description: The Department of Health and Human Services along with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services published a Reform of Requirements for Long-Term Care Facilities on October 4, 2016.

The training contains information regarding Phase 1 of the New Nursing Home Regulations that will be effective starting November 28, 2016. This information addresses the new language included in the New Nursing Home Regulations, and how Phase 1 will be implemented via the State Operations Manual, F-Tags, and survey process.

This training prepares surveyors to implement Phase 1 requirements. Around this same time, CMS will be releasing a revised version of Appendix PP which retains existing tags and guidance, but incorporates the newly effective regulatory language. We will be releasing a job aid that identifies the F-Tags that have new regulatory language added. This training also address how the survey process will be used to address the regulatory requirements.
